Ramped Up

It's Sweetnesday!

Her Majesty was having difficulty navigating the steps that I'd created for her from different levels of cardboard boxes.

She, of course, would not admit to such a thing.

After some research, I learned that steps are harder for aged kitty bones to use, while ramps eliminated the extra pressure on joints.

Therefore, The Hubby was tasked with creating a ramp from whatever supplies he could put together from his vast supply of carpentry detritus (read: scrap) that he's accumulated.
Et voila!
Swee Wee: "Whatever..."
Will admit that she seemed to ignore the thing, and remained on top of the bed much more than usual, and I despaired that she hated the ramp.

But an afternoon away from home (read: not hovering), we discovered that she's navigated around just fine; the food bowl was empty, the water bowl level was lower, and her private powder room accessed.

❤️That's my Sweetie!❤️

  2. They never really want to let us know that they like what we humans create. They'll just sneak in their appreciation. Now I think I understand what the other two were helping their dad with.

  6. The very best way for them to navigate. We did the same thing for our pup, Little Bit. She took to the ramp very quickly.

    Have a fabulous day and rest of the week. Scritches to the kitties. ♥

  8. Oh, Sweetie, you landed in such a loving space. I'm glad you are managing to overcome Her Majesty's proclivities when peasants are out of sight. lol Hugs, my dears.

  9. Sweetie is being loved and cared for in a special way!
    Our three remaining kitties still manage to go down and up the solid oak staircase and they also manage to jump.
    Guess it all depends on their health issues. They are 17 years + 2.5 months now.
    Hugs,
    Mariette + Kitties

  10. Sweetie just didn't want to be the centre of unwanted attention. "Go about your business, people. It's just a ramp." But thank goodness she has such caring humans in her life.

  11. She can't let you know directly it works, it's against the cat code of silence.

    This reminds me of a story in a book of cat stories about a lady who installed a cat door and tried to teach her cats to use it, and about gave up until she came home from work early one day and caught them both outdoors. She commented to the neighbor how they had finally learned to use the door and he looked at her in a confused manner and said, "They've been using it while you are at work since the day after you installed it!"

    That night, no matter how much they howled for her to open the door, she ignored them!
